About the Book

An existentialist novel relating an outbreak of plague in the Algerian city of Oran and the ways in which various people respond to it. After the city is placed under quarantine many people begin to despair. Looking for some form of solace others turn to religion, while still others accept their situation with a kind of fatalism, wondering at the absurdity of life, that is can be destroyed so pointlessly and arbitrarily.
